Challanges:

  • Create a post production Super 8 film FX.
  • Filming at night with a DSLR.
  • Filming with limited budget & equipment.

Filming at night was quite tricky with my Nikon D5500, it creates a lot of noise in the footage when shooting with a high ISO. Together we came up with the idea of making it look like a super 8 film effect 60-70thies style; it fitted the song perfectly. That solved the noise, even had to add more noise for some shots. I created all special FX myself to give it a unique look and feel, including the super 8 FX that I created post-production.

Because of a limited budget, I had to use my Nikon D5500 for all the shooting, it's not the best camera to film within dark places, and I had to re-shoot a few shots to get good lighting. Most footage was also shot out of hand, which gave it an amateur look and enhanced the Super 8 film effect even more.
